solar eclipse of the midnight sun, which occurred in the night of 1st/2nd June 2011. This was possible because of the northern hemisphere summer and its long polar day during which the sun does not set at all for many weeks. Of course our Friday picture feature of that week showed a couple of photos of the eclipse. Also the KAIRA blog featured photos of the eclipse, taken from a hilltop not far from Sodankylä.
Just recently, however, we were made aware of a phantastic time lapse film of this eclipse, taken in Norway, by Eivind Kolstad. Enjoy!
